Phobias

A phobia is an extreme fear of something that can be very debilitating. People can suffer from phobias of almost anything; e.g. objects, places, animals, feelings or situations. There are two types of phobias, complex and simple. Simple phobias are based on a specific thing (e.g. spiders, heights, injections) whereas complex phobias are generally more disabling (e.g. agoraphobia - fear of open spaces, social phobia). Simple phobias can generally be managed by avoiding the thing that causes it whereas complex phobias affect your everyday life and prevent you from carrying out essential activities such as going to the shops. Phobias are a type of anxiety disorder and symptoms usually arise upon contact with phobia source, however, some experience symptoms just thinking about the phobia source.
